Wanted portraits of Mendeleev! We need the help of students, educators and chemical enthusiasts from around the world!. We want to create a Mendeleev mosaic as a companion piece to our Timeline of Elements.The University of Waterloo is organizing another collaborative project! Find out more.
Timeline of Elements project update: Elements have been assigned to 118 schools from around the world — 26 countries! Our goal is to have chemistry students join together to create an original and imaginative version of the Timeline of Elements focused on their discovery.
To celebrate 2011 International Year of Chemistry, we organized a student-designed collaborative The Periodic Table Project. The project was a great success, resulting in a poster, wall mural and free mobile app.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is making it possible to discover new drugs faster, cheaper and more efficiently.
Waterloo chemists have introduced AI to interpret the results acquired by the differential mobility spectrometry (DMS) technique to predict drug properties. This could reduce in principle the time between concept and coming to market of new drugs by years and decrease production costs by $100s of million.

Each year, the University of Waterloo awards HeForShe IMPACT scholarships to outstanding first-year students studying in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics. The $12,000 scholarships are part of the University of Waterloo’s commitment to encourage more young minds to pursue careers in STEM, an area where those who identify as women or non-binary groups are currently underrepresented.
